American Crime season three starts to take shape as cast and setting are announced
For a while, American Crime season three seemed like a shaky proposition. Show runner John Ridley would reportedly abandon the Emmy-winning ABC property for another series recently given the go. Fortunately for fans of Ridley and his hot-button anthology series, American Crime season three will move forward at ABC, and it will feature two of its biggest stars.
Multiple news outlets are confirming Felicity Huffman’s return to the series. She won an Emmy nomination for its first incarnation and will likely receive a second Emmy nomination on July 14. Huffman is officially joined by Emmy-winner Regina King. Co-star Timothy Hutton should also return, but an official announcement is still outstanding.
American Crime season three will take place in North Carolina and will reportedly deal with labor issues, economic inequality, and civil rights. The actual filming, however, will take place in Los Angeles thanks to new California tax credits. No word yet on whether or not the new season will incorporate the recently controversial North Carolina-based HB2 legislation. The bill, among other items, restricts bathroom entry to an individual’s gender at birth.
Felicity Huffman won an Emmy for ABC’s Desperate Housewives, and Regina King received an Emmy for season one of American Crime.
